Teresa Moro 03 December 2003 - 17 January 2004
Foxy Production presents wildlife, the first New York solo exhibition of Madrid-based artist, TERESA MORO. In a new series of paintings and works on paper, Moro explores the cushioned architecture of everyday life. Moro creates isolated and huddled groups of beds, sofas and chairs that foreground a contemporary desire for comfort, social withdrawal and impassivity. Moro’s soft architecture frames the absent body while possessing anthropomorphic and metaphysical qualities. Gold is over-laid with muted color to produce shimmering soft haloes in spaces without depth or graphic clarity. Moro executes a troubling aesthetic that makes the banal appear transcendent, producing beautiful and disturbing icons of leisure.
